Labidochromis caeruleus "Ruarwe"

Recommended Posts

Took some updated photos of my Lab.caeruleus Ruarwe colony yesterday. The dominant male was showing off to two of his ladies who are both gravid and ready to spawn. These guys were breeding like clockwork for quite a while but haven't spawned in a while. I did a 50% water change and increased the feedings and they're back at it again. I've raised a few spawns from them and the juveniles are growing out with the rest of the colony now. Extra males will be taken out as they reach maturity. 

Differences from Lion's Cove:
-no blue iridescence in the caudal fin
-the anal fin is yellow instead of white
-blue metallic band in the dorsal fin
-thinner black banding in dorsal fin
-overall colour is bright orange with no white bellies
